Mmm, who doesn’t love cookies? Especially this time of year? The cookie bakers are in full effect and all the sugar imaginable is out and about. I wanted a sweet cookie but didn’t want to spend too much time on it…I mean I was making these for myself to have a healthy sweet option at home that I wouldn’t go crazy over in a sugar coma and these turned out perfect. Try my Oatmeal Mixed Berry Cookies!
So I based these cookies off of this Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookie recipe which is totally clean and happens to be gluten free. I love being able to create sweet recipes that has no added true sugar. I grew up with a mega-sweet tooth, so the fact that I can now enjoy cookies and muffins that don’t have that much sugar in them is so awesome!
I used a dried mixed berry mix which I had gotten in a snack box from Nature Box which I paid for and wasn’t all that impressed with. Glad I tried it, since I had a coupon, but it came with mostly non-vegan products and if I am going to spend over $20 bucks I want all vegan snacks! These mixed berries were awesome. Since they had their own added sweetness I used only a little maple syrup to add a kick to them. Yum!
